Yu and Mikaela are not reunited under the best circumstances. Despite this fact, Yu refuses to kill Mikaela. He even goes against the protests of Guren and the rest of his group. Of course, I can understand why Guren and his friends want him to kill Mikaela. They think he is a vampire, after all. On the other hand, Mikaela is family to Yu. He will never try to hurt his family. Yu has had the shock of his life in this episode. He is completely confused and he blames himself for what happened to Mikaela. Ferid, of course, has a blast tormenting Mikaela by making taunts and various insane suggestions. He even offers to turn Yu into a vampire for Mikaela. The vampires plan on keeping Yu alive and using everyone as livestock.
Mikaela seems to be convinced that the humans have been using Yu. He wants to rescue his foster brother from this madness. He has developed distaste for humans because of his belief that they have been hurting the person he loves. Does he know something about the humans and the Seraph experiment that Yu does not know? The demon Ashuramaru even mentioned to Yu that he was not completely human. She warned him to beware of humans because they can be more terrifying than vampires can. What have they done to Yu?
Crowley and other vampire nobles arrive during the confusing battle between the vampires and the humans. Guren immediately orders a retreat. I was almost disappointed in the lack of a bigger fight. However, they couldn’t even take down Crowley when he was alone so this was the right decision to make. Unfortunately, the idea of retreat was used too late. The vampire nobles take down Guren and his team easily while Mikaela takes Yu away to have a little conversation with him.
He tries to force Yu to choose between Mika and his friends. Mika tries to make Yu see that he is being used by humans and that they are not to be trusted. Yu was forced to watch his friends become meals once more. This time, Mikaela refuses to let him go help. The pain of watching his friends become a meal becomes too much for Yu to handle. He becomes some type of vampire killing machine that is uncontrollable. There is an appearance of seraphs inside of his mind while this happens. Does Yu bring about Armageddon? There were seven trumpets and seven angels inside of his mind. This makes the future much more unclear and terrifying.
Mika looks horrified by Yu’s transformation. It is apparent that he has an idea about what is going on. Guren looks excited and smug. He knows what is going on and he is happy about it. I wonder what Yu’s reaction will be once he finds out what has been done to him. While he is in his “angel” form, he talks about destroying all sinners. This means he does more than kill vampires. He will try to kill anyone who has sinned in his eyes.
After Yu goes crazy and tries to kill Shinoa, Mika surprised everyone by getting in the way of the attack. He saves her life. Mika is tough to be able to withstand all of these attacks from Yu. He seems determined to make sure that Yu does not kill any humans. What will happen to Yu if he kills a human? Is his situation similar to Mika’s situation? Were they both involved in this experiment? Mika’s actions are still confusing to me. Earlier in this episode of Seraph of the End, he wanted Yu to leave his friends to die.
I will say that they did an excellent job on the fight scene animation in episode 11 of Seraph of the End. Yu’s transformation was extremely bright, detailed, and colorful. I enjoyed watching the monster scenes thoroughly. The character design makes him look incredibly deadly and incredibly terrifying. I think that Guren has insisted on finding friends for Yu because it is the only way to bring him back from the angel that he has become. I cannot wait to find out what Guren’s plans are and how Yu will accept the fate that he has been given.
